SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A group of men is patrolling the grounds of Roosevelt Elementary School in Spokane.

The "Watch Dogs" group organized earlier this year as part of a national program to involve more fathers and male role models in schools.

KREM reports ( they started by monitoring halls, helping in classrooms and cleaning the lunchroom.

Since the Connecticut school shooting they've been patrolling the school campus. Watch Dogs hopes to have at least one volunteer at the school every day.
